    Hi guys!

    So basically I promote my TV shows website using YouTube, and everything was just fine BEFORE THE YOUTUBE UPDATE!
    Last month I was making 80$-250$ from promoting on YouTube, 90% of my videos were always getting to the first page of the search!
    After the "Tuesday's Update", none of my videos get to the first page of the search, and now I'm earning 10$ a day.
    Note: My videos aren't deleted, they're just in the 5th-10th page of the search, which sucks because no one can actually find me.
    NOTE: My description and tags are long and good! and I even tried to change my title/description/tags to one of the "first page's" videos, did not help.

    Please I would like to know how to get back to business! I'm getting desperate :(
    Thanks!

    No, I don't think so.

    The date uploaded has a big affect as well. So just be patient and it may be first over time

    Try to unlist your video... wait 2-3-4 hours and list it again, this way the youtube bot will index your movie again and you have a great chance to get in top poisition again :)

    i heard in another thread here in BHW that blasting xrumer links to your video helps in ranking. and of course, have your videos main keyword as the links anchor text. you can get 10,000 of these xrumer links on fiverr for $5. its worth a shot. and you should only have one tag for your video, the only tag you should have is your main keyword. i am no expert on this but it makes sense and other known members here in BHW are saying these tips.

    YouTube ranks a YT video based on several points. I got a few videos as 1st search result. It really depends on the amount of competition for a certain keyword if you can get it on the first page. I got my video on the first page using these tips:

    - Place keyword in title
    - Place keyword a few times in description, within 500 words and within a sentence
    - Place keyword in Tags
    - Create backlinks to your video. I manually submit the link to forums/blogs with unique messages for each post, so it looks natural!
    - Create social bookmarks/links to your video (using multiple social networks). This actually makes your video ranks very high, very fast (usually within a day on the first page), but only this does not ensure that your video stays on first page!
    - A decent ammount of views/comments/(positive)ratings
    - A good youtube channel with lot of subscribers/videos/views helps ranking the video higher too!

    Hope it helps!
